Divi Instagram Carousel Module Content Tab

The content tab is considered the most prominent tab that contributes to building the framework of the module. This tab allows you to connect an Instagram account with the website. Moreover, a couple of advanced carousel features and others are included inside the content tab. All these features are easy to customize & responsive for different devices. So, let’s get into the deep of the content tab to learn all the features in detail.

Max Slide Desktop, Tablet & Mobile

The Max Slide feature for the Desktop, Tablet & Mobile is the precious beauty of this module. Creating a different viewport for these three different devices is just a matter of a click under the max slide attribute, as you are aware that the mobile and tablet screens are smaller than the desktop. Here, you can easily determine the number of image slides displayed on the screen of several devices. So, this feature is proven as super supportive in such circumstances. In other words, you can define these features as the responsiveness power of the Divi Instagram image carousel module. Remember turning on the variable width takes away the Max Slide Desktop, Tablet & Mobile features.
